Does anyone notice the LTE speed and how much responsive 6.1 update? It appears to be faster for me. Just curious if anyone notice any difference. Thanks!

NEW FEATURE NOT DISCUSSED BEFORE: In the music app, while connected to the same network, you can play your Mac iTunes music and turn on the screen saver as well as using airplay on the Apple TV. Pretty friggin cool.

Heard there's a jailbreak untethered for 6.1 and 6.0.1,6.0.2. So fare to say upgrade to 6.1.anyone? Just double checking.

I can't see anything different with the new IOS 6.1 on my iPod touch 4th gen at all.

There's one more new thing! Siri now works with Spanish, and probably other languages too (previously, spanish could be selected as a language in Siri preferences but it was only available for Dictation).

Why apple updated carrier settings to allow LTE for companies like Telcel (Mexico) just for iPad 4gen and iPad mini and not for iPhone 5 or iPad 3gen??????

Why even waste your time to change to6.1. Then to jail break. If you iphone is working ok on 5.1.1 and is already JB. let it be

6.1 full of crap It doesn't give anything of substance
odedoo1 - January 28, 2013 at 10:34pm
no way I'm upgrading my 4S and my iPad 3 LTE from 5.1.1 to 6.1 till i know for sure that Apple didn't block the jailbreak and the jailbreak is out and working, the only problem is that because installuos is gone nobody wrote a new AppSync 6 so i don't know if its worth it for me to upgrade at all, i might just stay on 5.1.1 because 6.1 gives me nothing i need, and everything on Cydia works on ios 5 but not much for ios 6.

Ya ill update so I can FINALLY jailbreak my iphone5 cause I miss Notifications I forgot the name from Cydia. But now all is need is the Jailbreak.

I cant believe they still didn't put in Sb settings or something along those lines..
odedoo1 - January 29, 2013 at 6:02am
believe it or not about two month ago SBSettings did make it to the App store for a couple of days till Apple figured that some new tester let it in and they took it right off, the way i found about it was because when i opened installuos it was the first App that showed i couldn't believe it so i clicked download and then from App Store it opened the App store and there it was i couldn't believe it payed the $2 and now i got a copy in my iTunes on my PC. The thing is that steve jobs knew how imported jail braking is for both sells and ideas infect if you knew how cydia started you would know that steve was involved but they will never admit it because when the first iPhone was invented Apple really showed off that its the first cell phone that cant be unlocked and back then the iPhone was only available in the U.S and i remember that 2 phones where sent over here and it was jailbroken unlocked and the first international call was made with a different sim by Bigboss to the U.S on the news. the thing is that steve wanted to see how far the iPhone can be pushed to do cool stuff which new management are doing everything to stop jailbreaking which caused millions of people to move to the Galaxy SIII , hopefully Apple learned their lesson and will only pretend to be trying to stop jailbreaking but with Tim cook at the helm i really doubt it, if any body will destroy Apple its him!

i was just tweeting with people which will remain nameless, they are doing the finishing touches on the jailbreak and the testing on all devices buy beta testers now that 6.1 is out and they didn't say the word ETA but they said if everything will work right the jailbreak will be released by this weekend.
